Yin Yang Yoga is a special designed sequence which combines passive and active asanas with Pranayama & meditation into what can be a very deep, integrated and satisfying practice.
Yang, similar to an all-levels class, is a flowing and dynamic sequence, which stretches and strengthens muscular tissues. Yin focuses on the connections in the pelvis, hips and lower spine. Yang activity is mobile, builds to an apex before calming down and maintains a core strength that requires appropriate effort; usually postures are standing and energizing. Yin Yoga activity is slow, steady with a sense of core softness and surrender; and involves more floor poses (sitting, laying on belly or back).
Instructor Info: Yoga helps Christine find space in life and body. It stirs up creativity, excitement and drive. Her wish is to take this excitement for yoga and share it with other yogis of all levels. She discovered yoga in 2006 while working in corporate accounting. During the time of intense working hours (that many of us can relate to), she started attending a 7am yoga class every Monday morning. When she started the week with yoga, she noticed her energy was high, her engagement and passion was peaked, and she had increased body awareness, mindful movement and eating. Yoga was the avenue to a calmer, energized and balanced life.
Christine’s passion for yoga has driven her to explore various yoga styles including; Vinyasa, Yin, Restorative, Hatha, Anusara, Iyengar, Jivamukti, Power Yoga and Bikram. Christine studied yoga in Washington D.C with a well-respected yoga training program focussed on a breadth of yoga styles incorporating various teachers nation-wide. She completed the 200 hour yoga teacher training in 2011 and the 500 hour advanced training in 2012 at Tranquil Space. She is a Yoga Alliance certified instructor (RYT 500).
